Cuphead and Assassin's Creed are invading Smash Ultimate in Mii form

Could we finally see Waluigi join the roster of fighters in a Super Smash Bros. game

Byleth from Fire Emblem: Three Houses is joining the fight in Smash Ultimate on January 28 and will include both the male and female models of the main character from the 2019 game. These characters comprise the Fighters Pass, which will be complete once Byleth is released at the end of the this month. The new pass will be called "Super Smash Bros".

The latest fighters have suffered from a lack of imagination, with another Fire Emblem representative and a mostly-forgotten Terry Bogard from Fatal Fury.

"I'm personally very sorry that we have to release Fighters Pass Volume 2 when the details have yet to be revealed", Sakurai said. The character can be purchased individually for $5.99 or as part of the Fighters Pass for $25.

The next Smash fighter will round out the game's first $25 Fighters Pass, which now consists of Joker from Persona, Hero from Dragon Quest, Banjo & Kazooie and Terry Bogard from Fatal Fury in addition to the unannounced mystery character.

That's right: the fifth downloadable character for Super Smash Bros.

In today's presentation, Sakurai confirmed that all six of the new characters have already been decided, even taking the time to mention that any tweets he receives demanding certain characters won't exactly have much effect. It seems Nintendo may have lost its edge with its DLC fighters, which is painful to see after the first few were so inspiring - Piranha Plant, in an actual plant pot!
